Yale Institute preps musical trio

Workshops held on June 7 - 21

A young man grappling with cancer, a meeting between Kublai Khan and Marco Polo and a visit to Andy Warhol’s Factory are the topics of three tuners to be workshopped at the new Yale Institute for Music Theater.

The Institute, run by the Yale Schools of Music and Drama, will help develop projects through private workshops to be held at Yale June 7-21.

“Cancer? The Musical,” with music, book and lyrics by Sam Wessels, follows the first nine months of diagnosis and treatment for a young man with cancer.

“Invisible Cities,” with score and libretto by Christopher Cerrone (a doctorate candidate at the Yale School of Music), centers on Polo telling Khan about his many journeys. In May “Cities” will be performed at both New York City Opera’s VOX Festival and the Virginia Arts Festival.

“Pop!,” with book and lyrics by Maggie-Kate Coleman and music by Anna K. Jacobs, depicts the shooting of Andy Warhol as a pop-art murder mystery, with the denizens of Warhol’s New York Factory becoming stock detective-pic characters.

Directors and casts for the projects have not been announced.
